Organizer Tutorial

Here's a quick step-by-step tutorial showing you how to make the desktop organizer that I posted last week. They are quick easy gifts that always seem to be appreciated.  I have filled them w/ cards and envelopes or scrap paper.

First score your cardstock 2" inches from the top of the 8 1/2" side of your cardstock and then again at 3".  (This will be the top of your organizer.) 

Turn your paper and score 1" and 2" from the edges of your l1" sides.

On the bottom of your cardstock score 1" and 2" from the 8 1/2" edge.


Now you are going to cut away to the 2 outside squares on both sides of the 2" and 3" score lines and cut in to make flips for folding your organizer.

On the bottom of your project cut away the 3 outside squares as shown and cut in to make your flaps.

This is how your organizer will look and  now is ready to assemble.

Using snail or sticky strip add adhesive to your flaps.

Now stick all 4 flaps inside the organizer.

Add adhesive to your sides and fold down them down.

Add adhesive to the two rectangles at the top of the box.

Fold down and your box is ready to be decorated.

I hope you have fun making these!  :)

I have EXTRAS so I'm making my blog readers an offer....

.....If you put in a $50 order (before s/h & tax) through my ONLINE STORE or contacting me by phone or email, I will put your name in a drawing to win a free stamp set. For every $50 you spend your name will be entered again. If you name is drawn, you can choose from the stamp sets I have remaining each week.
